2013 or 2014
 
I was talking to my wife today and she told me I could get a 2013 ZL1 while I am home for 30 days before I head back to Afghanistan. Though I have been talking to an awesome dealer for a 2014 due for delivery in June next year for my Birthday. The only main thing that is the difference for me is the Recaro seats. Should I pull the gun and get the 13 or wait it out a bit longer?:confused:

I'd personally wait, save up your money while your away and have a nice big payment for when you get back. By then you'll be able to sit in one and find out if you even like sitting in those seats.

mmarx82 07-17-2013 11:54 PM

Plus I've already heard some dealers being dumb on the 14's already charging a few K over MSRP...

zirotti 07-17-2013 11:55 PM

It took a good 6 months before MSRP++ settled down. Save yourself some money and get a 2013.

USMC Anti Venom 07-17-2013 11:56 PM

Thats the thing. I have sit in a Camaro with stock seats and a Shelby with the Recaros. Both are comfortable for me.

The dealer I have been talking to is Becky.

mmarx82 07-18-2013 12:17 AM

Becky is good to go, I passed her info on earlier this week to someone. I'm just saying that Recaro seats are not all the same, just slight variations between them all. I guess the next question would be how do you like the new brake lights on the 2014's? And the 14's will have a color hud as well. You probably already knew all that though.

USMC Anti Venom 07-18-2013 12:23 AM

The lights really don't bother me anymore. They did when they first came out, but they grew on me. Color hud really had no affect in the choice.

RLHMARINES 07-18-2013 01:35 AM

Go with the '14 unless you can get an awesome deal on a '13 and its not a compromise on what's important to you. Becky will not stear you wrong, she is the best. I've used her on our last two purchases.

Semper Fi Devil Dog!!

Ok so lights and HUD don't matter to you, sounds like it comes down to the seats, sooo...

And the seats are Retro-Fit. On a side note how are things in bama? I'm from Huntsville.

Either one works within my budget. I can work with the dealer we got our Suburban from and get the price into the low 50's

hognutz 07-18-2013 10:17 AM

I personally like the 2013 rear end better so I say 13. Looks are subjective though. If you like the look of the 14 get the 14 as it is newer.

I would think the deals should be better on a 13 but have not been looking at pricing since I bought mine. I got supplier price on a 13 last summer so seems like should be able to do better now.

My initial answer should be hot, but actually this is the coolest July I can remember in a very long time.

My mom grew up in Huntsville, not sure I have any family to speak of up there, used to have a lot, the Plexicos and the Perrys



The rumors about retro fitting the Recaros is that they would be hard to get at first because all of the available ones would go to the Z/28's, but then if they are talking about letting you order a '14 ZL1 with them I don't know.

I'm going to say truth is you probably cannot make a bad decision here, I mean the differences are going to be so subtle especially if you would put the Recaros in either way.

He makes a good point, getting them will be hard or expensive to get for the first 6 months to a year. If you really want them then I'd order the 14 with them in it already.

Just remember the nightmare caused when people wanted to order the black 10 spoke wheels! How long did that take to finally happen? :D Production cars get first pick, then any defective seats in any of the new cars will get replaced first. That was the process used for the wheels at least?

lbls1 07-18-2013 01:52 PM

If it were me I would definiteliy go for the '14. I happen to like the '14 package (rear lights, bumper valence, Recaros).

Jstyle 07-18-2013 05:53 PM

Who is Becky? I'm looking for a 13 and a good dealer anywhere on the east coast that will give a great deal.

RedCamaroZL1 07-18-2013 07:04 PM

I'd get the 14 if you're getting deployed and the car ends up sitting for a long time. But if you prefer the look of the 13 rear and can save money, then get a 13. I was waiting to see the 14 before I got my 13, and didn't like the refresh. Hurried to track one down with the options I wanted and saved 2500 off sticker in the process. I've seen a few 14s now in person, and even tho I prefer the 13 still, I would be just as happy in a 14 for the seats cancel out the tail.

OVERPAR73 07-18-2013 07:16 PM

Save up a butt load of that tax free money and then make sure you talk to Becky at Rogers Chevrolet when you get back and are ready to pick out the one, exactly what you want. Be safe and hurry back home!

Johnman 07-18-2013 07:27 PM

I'd get the 2014, especially if you want Recaros and are OK with the taillights. The taillights have grown on me, they look fine, just not as unique anymore. Stay safe over there in Afghanistan.
